Diamonds are this girl's best friend

Forgetting one's earphones at home makes for an eerily soundtrackless day...

1. Remembering learnings over a 5-day vacation span is slightly unrealistic, especially given the presence of occasional alcoholism and naps.

2. Remembering what one did over a 5-day vacation span is very unrealistic, especially given the presence of frequent alcoholism and long naps and exciting poker games.

3. Love can come in the form of juice. Or jewelry.

4. Good things come in small packages. But small things can come in big packages.

5. 'Why not' is not an adequate reason why.

6. A couple of kilos is a fair price to pay for happiness.

7. Gifts are easy peasy. If you want your girlfriend to fall in love with you: Tiffany's, Cartier, Graff or DeBeers. If you want her to break up with you: Virgin Megastore gift voucher.

8. Apparently, a turkey gains cute-ness status only once stuffed, roasted, carved and consumed.

9. With increasing occurrence, the stock value of a long-distance call decreases considerably. Unless accompanied by a Western Union money transfer. In which case, stock value increases.

10. When it comes to Christmas gifts, it's the thought that counts. But if you have Visa and Mastercard on your side, the bigger the diamond the better.

11. An unusually large aquarium in a gaudy sprawling mall will draw a representative Dubai demographic.

12. The best way to justify the impulsive purchase of an expensive item is to convert the cost into another more valuable currency. The sound of the number feels much better.

13. It is little worrisome when you find you are relating a little too much to a little gem of a book with the little word "booty" right there in the title.

14. The amount of seafood which a group of people can eat in one sitting is equal to the amount of seafood which makes it to the table.

15. A maid is the one indispensable luxury which one should never skimp on. Along with over-priced morning coffees and croissants.

16. Feeling forgotten and being forgotten are two very different things.

17. Electronics stores have especially gruesomely unsightly lighting.

18. In the absence of cuddly sweaters and falling snow, that special Christmas feeling can be simulated by the buying of many many super duper cool gifts.

19. There is nothing that lifts the spirits quite like lovely weather, lots and lots of smiles and the prospect of lunch with a good friend.

20. The longer the break between learnings, the longer the learnings...

    1. People usually stop saying "bless you" after 2 sneezes. They also usually move away from you.

    2. Taking too many exams in a row makes you feel like a big exam machine, just spitting out knowledge here and there.

    3. Sneezing 4 times in a row tells me that I am allergic to lack of sleep.

  2. An opening of a Bakery called "sugar daddy's" next to one's home can cause serious damage to goals such as 0% body fat.
